After a nearly two-year hiatus, Vietjet Air will be resuming scheduled passenger flights to selected international destinations from January 1, 2022. The budget airline has recently secured approval from the central government to operate regular services from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Seoul Incheon, Singapore, Taipei-Taoyuan, and Tokyo Narita.

For the first phase starting on New Year’s Day, each route will be flown on a weekly basis, with increasing frequencies in line with actual travel demand and government rules. In the next phase, Vietjet is planning to restart operations across the rest of its pre-pandemic global network, while looking to open new routes to countries such as India and Russia. The low-cost carrier has previously said it will launch flights to Moscow in July 2022 with twice-weekly nonstop services from Hanoi and Nha Trang, and a direct service from Ho Chi Minh City that include a two-hour layover in Hanoi.

Detailed international flight schedules will be posted on Vietjet’s official website, Vietjet Air mobile apps, and the airline’s Facebook page. As pandemic regulations and guidelines differ for each country, passengers are advised to study entry requirements and stay up-to-date on rules for vaccine certificates, Covid-19 tests, and quarantines well ahead of their trip. Travelers can make entry and exit declarations on the Entry Declaration section of and manage their information via QR code.
